Working at home

It’s usually nice, sometimes challenging, always interesting.

The other day both Tia and I were working in the “spare” office when Delaney came in to snap a photo.

This isn’t how I always work, but I do tend to do editing up there rather than in the basement if I get the chance. Tia’s usually down at her main desk, but she injured her ankle awhile back (with horses, of course), and she’s been trying to spend more time in bed resting.

Working at home has some great advantages, but at the same time it means that this is a typical scene for us. When life gets us busy, we often end up at night in this same position trying to finish off work that didn't get done during the day. I think we balance things pretty well, but once in awhile we definitely spend a bit too much time at work.

This is nice of course. Becuase kids are not available during the day and you spend time on things that you want(aren't supposed to).When you actually have to relax at night then the kids are there and sometimes finding that you and your fiancee or wife are not even on the same career path let alone being called at work.

Thanks, it's nice to have the flexibility.
